numbers announced yesterday. the economy added 150,000 new jobs, but the unemployment rate ticked up to 7.9%, which is what we have there on our map this was also the lead story in this morning's new york times -- on our map. this was also the lead story in this morning's new york times. patrick, explain how that works, more jobs added, but the unemployment rate goes up. guest: the economy needs to add up -- needs to create enough jobs to make up for people coming into the labour market. this month, we fell slightly short of getting there. it is worth noting, the unemployment rate has a margin for error of 0.2%. when it picks up a 0.1%, we say, it is essentially unchanged. there is a wiggle room for measurements. it is right around par. host: when these numbers come out, the numbers come out, and there is an explanation that they can be adjusted in a month or so down the road trips -- road. guest: tell us about -- as more data comes in, debris-estimate how many jobs came in, and for december, they went from 155,000 jobs to 196,000 jobs. and in november, job growth was showing 146,000 jobs
in the technology industry where it was mentioned that between 2010 2010-2020, the american economy will annually create more than 120,000 additional computer or science jobs that were require at least a bachelors degree. that's just mention one aspect of this. this is great news for many of our computer science students. and for joy that is the end of the good news. each year only about 40,000 american students receive bachelor degrees in computer science. in other words, there are approximately 80,000 new computer science positions every year in the united states cannot be filled by available american workforce positions. and i have positions that need to be filled so that our technology industry can continue to thrive. simply put, u.s. based companies have a great need for those trained in the science, technology, engineering and math fields. but at least right now there are not enough americans trained and ready to fill these jobs. we cannot continue to simply hope that american companies do not move operations to countries where they have greater access for individuals trained in these s.t.e

here is to help undocumented immigrants who are already a part of the this country's economy and he made the argument that helping them would help all americans. >> obama: every day, like the rest of us, they go out and they go out and trytry to earn a living. they often do that in a shadow of economy where employers may offer them less than minimum wage or make them work overtime without extra pay. when in a happens, it's not just bad for them but the entire economy. because all the business who is are trying to do the right thing thing, hire people legally following the rules, they are the ones who suffer. >> jennifer: he's right, the shadow economy hurts everyone, particularly the workers who are operating in it. 67% of domestic workers are paid below the minimum wage. less than 2% receive retirement or pension. 65% of those workers don't have health insurance and there is absolutely no recurs. 85% of undocumented immigrants who encounter problems in their working conditions didn't complain because of their shaky immigration status. they have reason to be concerned, that it woul
a new set of challenges after the commerce department reported yesterday that the nation's economy shrank for the first time since the great recession. >> how did that happen? >> well, government data shows the gross domestic product contracted at a .1% rate in the fourth quarter of 2012. it was the first decline since 2009. it put the white house on the defensive after months of touting steady job growth. >> there's more work to do, and our economy is facing a major headwind which goes to your point, and that's republicans in congress. talk about letting the sequester kick in, as though that were an acceptable thing belies where republicans were on this issue not that long ago, and it makes clear, again, that this is political brinksmanship of the kind that results in one primary victim, and that's american taxpayers, the american middle class. >> okay. what do you think is going on there, joe? >> i think what's going on is that we have spent more money as a government over the past four years than we have in the history of the republic. added $6 trillion in debt. and we have just
. >> old man winter taking us for a ride. >>> the other big story, the economy. the powerful rally on wall street. if you've invested in stocks, these are good days. >> and for the reasons stocks are reaching near record levels, we're joined by tahman bradley here in new york. >> so nice to be with you here. seems like the economy is turning around. new data is sh are giving both investors and home owners reasons to smile. the economy posts numbers we haven't seen in years. it looks and feels like a comeback. stocks and the nation's housing market are soaring. the dow nearly hit the 14,000 mark yesterday, reaching the highest level in fife years. after an increase in 850 points in january, the dow is only 200 points away in the all-time high. the result, american investments are surging. the average 401(k) retirement account increased 20% in the last year. from $64,000 to $80,000. >> the worst case scenarios, people can start to think, all right, we're not going the go there. >> reporter: on the housing front, home prices rose 5.5% in november. the biggest year to year increase since the h
be paid. when that goes into the family checkbook, it will go right in to the economy which we need right now. to buy shoes, to buy food, to do all the things that occur in the real economy. so we think it's great social policy, but we think it's an economic mandate. >> and senator boxer, that is a fact because with $10,000 less a year, then they earned with men, women could buy, if they had that money, 92 weeks of groceries or 13 months of rent or 39 months of family health insurance premium. i mean, we're talking food, housing, health care. this isn't just a little extra money. this is vital, especially for single moms. >> it is so critical. and it is, you know, what happens is we have a consumer-driven economy. about 70% of our economy depends on the consumer going out and spending. so when senator mikulski describes this, she's exactly right. an when you take it to a further level, it's critical. it's critical for the family. it's critical for retirement. it's critical for the economy. so all of this means we're going to have a real strong push. and i think this year, maybe we'll get

support this plan say reform is good for elections and the economy. >> reform is critical to the nation's economy. the reality is that even in a very tight economy, there are all types of industries in our country which have used the work of immigrants every day to achieve the economic goals of those industries. >> the vast majority of americans believe that we need to have a legal immigration system that works an we have no is not a 21st century legal immigration system. >> reporter: the house is working on its own version of immigration reform. however, many democratic leaders say they're not quite as far along as the senate and of course they have their own critics, many of them republican members of the house who are concerned about money and whether or not the money will go towards securing our boarders. we'll have much more -- our borders. we'll have much more coming up in the half-hour. >> thanks, delia, live on capitol hill this morning. >>> in the last year border patrol agents have been dealing with more people trying to come to the country illegal. in 2012 agents made more th

. two wars come to an economy in, traditional alliances fraying, are diplomatic standing damaged, and around the world people questioning america's commitments to core values and their ability to maintain our global leadership. that was my inbox on day one as your secretary of state. today conclave the world remains a dangerous and complicated place and of course we still face many difficult challenges. but a lot has changed in the last four years. under president obama's leadership we have ended the war in iraq, begun a transition in afghanistan and brought osama bin laden to justice. we have also revitalized american diplomacy and strengthen our alliances. and while our economic recovery is not yet complete, we are heading in the right direction. in short, america today is stronger at home and more respected in the world. and our global leadership is on firmer footing than many predicted. to understand what we have been trying to do these last four years, it's helpful to start with some history. last year i was honored to deliver the forest all lecture at the naval academy name
number. we're warning, does it necessarily mean that the market has been wrong about the economy? or was it the one off and was it, you know, some special factors that caused that shrinkage and does it get revised back up and subsequent reports? i've heard a lot of places. this is the best negative gdp report. >> well, if you're going to have to pick a negative one, this would be it. >> but there was a lot of good stuff. >> it doesn't startle the market at all when it came out. >> i don't know whether they're whistling past the grape yard -- the mark was over a contraction, but not negative. >> they were looking for growth of 1%. >> so it was expected to be -- to go down. no one thought it would be negative. but if you're looking for 1% and you minus a tenth -- >> it's off by one. >> you think it's going to hit the unemployment rate? there's a big debate. >> i have no idea. >> i it probably won't this time around -- >> plus one or zero is not a big difference. the reality is you need 3% gdp growth. >> that's assuming that he needs an introduction. >> you're right, he doesn't. thi
is expected to sign this bill immediately. >>> now to the economy and the financial markets. stocks fell a bit today with all three major indexes modestly lower. but for the month, the dow was up almost 6%, the best since january in '94. nasdaq gained 4%, s&p just over 6. its best january since '97. what is the market surge trying to tell us when mixed in with some bad news out there, as well? and on the eve of another big jobs report? our report from nbc's tom costello. >> reporter: 25-year-old kory wilson can tell you, it's not easy looking for a job. she has applied for 200 since earning a master's degree in public relations last may. >> being a post graduate, either i'm overqualified or i'm underqualified. >> she is looking for work, but the economy seemingly poised to either take off or take a stumble. today new applications brought employment benefits jumped by 38,000. but they hit five-year lows the previous two weeks. personal income and spending both grew in december. the housing market seems to be improving, and while the economy actually shrank in the fourth quarter, many blame gove
of the economy and financial crisis, that is what we are asking about you this morning, if the financial crisis has delayed those plants for you. give us a call. robert, clinton, md., you are on, sir. caller: 401k, in the early part of november my three kids were named the beneficiaries. we did all the paperwork. here it is, since february 4, and i have not got the money yet. the company that has the 401k, first of all, you cannot find them. i work in the credit union. they would not give you any information about the company that had the 401k. here it is, the fourth, and they still have not got the money. you have got to wait a long time to get your money. host: tell us a little bit about your plans, because of the limbo you are in. what does that mean for you? caller how it means i have to be very careful about four hope -- 401k. if something happened to me, i would release the money to my kids or something like that. if they needed it right away, they could get it, but they still have not received the money. i still do not know how these things work. because of the interest, i do not know. t
, is unconscionable. when we turn this economy around, and it will rebound, we need to end hunger now. we may not be able to wipe out all disease, we probably can't eliminate war, but we have the resources, we know what it takes. we need to muster the will to end hunger once and for all. hunger is a political condition. it's important to point out that even though 50 million people were food insecure, the vast majority had a safety net that prevented them from actually starving. that safety ned is called the supplement -- that safety net is called snap. snap is a program that provides low-income families with food they otherwise could not afford to buy. more than 75 million families relied on snap to provide food for their families. it is a lifeline for these 47 million people who struggle to make ends meet. i don't deny this is a big number, but it's a big number because it's a big problem. mr. speaker, america's hunger problem will be dramatically worse without snap. just imagine what this country would look like if we didn't have the safety net that snap provides for low-income families in
to the economy that we are not going to like. the headline from last week about the slowing of our gdp, it is going to be a situation where it is no longer acceptable to kick the can. so, when we talk about the need for tax reforms, i am one who says that we have got to put it all on the table. we have got to be willing to make some very difficult choices. the options if we fail to act are not something that most in this country will be satisfied with. >> i know that says you want to take a look at some of the energy initiatives here. in the house they talked about doing energy efficiency legislation puc that moving? still questionable? >> let me just start by saying that i am a firm believer in doing more in this country when it comes to efficiency. it is one of the legs of the energy tool that is absolutely critical to us. i think it is often overlooked. people look -- people look to the old technologies and there are things making news. someone joked to me once that if we could just figure out how to have a groundbreaking or ribbon cutting that involved some kind of energy efficienc
that governors and state legislatures and state lawmakers are focussing on things like this and not the economy and jobs, the worse off it is for them. >> you are starting to see, interestingly, a bit of a pullback by some of the republicans even on these democracy issues, even on voting. governor rick scott in florida who was behind the laws that made it impossible for that well known radical sect, the league of women voters of florida. >> voter registration. >> they are behind those laws which were blocked by the courts. now rick scott has come in and said, you know what, we need to expand early voting. we need to go a different way because he knows that the voters actually will vote based on this, and, you know, this is what i hope is a potential glimmer of possibility for something to move forward. president obama in his inaugural address and on election night said we need to do something about the way we run elections. >> indeed we do. >> that's a chance the country ought to try to take because not to rig the game, but to take kind of commonsense steps to modernize voter registration. >> g
we have less of it. the might of our military, the size of our economy, the influence of our diplomacy, and the creative energy of our people remains unrifle. no, it is because as the world has changed, so, too, have the levers of power that can most effectively shape international affairs. i have come to think of it like this -- truman and acheson were building the parthenon with classical geometry unclear lines. the colors were a handful of big institutions and alliances dominated by major powers, and that structure delivered unprecedented peace and prosperity. but time takes a toll even on the greatest benefits -- edifice, and we do need a new architecture for a new world. more frank gehry than formal greek. [laughter] think of it. some of his work might appear at first haphazard, but it is highly intentional and sophisticated. where once a few strong columns could hold up the weight of the world, today we need a dynamic mixture of materials and structures. american military and economic strength will remain the foundation of our global leadership, as we saw from the inter
to be an economy of force response. but, you know, first of all, you know, that has always been our -- other than actual the physical defense of the continental united states or the legal united states, you know, that's been our principal security interest ever since before we were a nation. it's clearly a moment in time where the -- and, of course, through history the patterns have gone back and forth between more autocratic and more liberal governments and regimes in that area. and we have a lot of partners with whom we could be working. we have had a, i mean, our model partnership with colombia which, you know, has been a pretty low-level thing, one which the house of representatives has traditionally kept very close tabs on is a model, counterinsurgency partnership. if we had aped that model in some of our middle east engagements, we would have been much better off also today. but it suggests that, um, again -- and it's possible to work with the brazilians, for example. the brazilians were the leading force in the u.n. mission in haiti. so it, some good things have been happening even while t
are people prepared for the careers of our new economy. by 2025 we could have 20 million jobs without enough college graduates to fill them. that's why at devry university we're teaming up with companies like cisco to help make sure everyone is ready with the know-how we need for a new tomorrow.
